Green Tea Cup Made of Banko Earthenware

Green Tea Cup Made of Banko Earthenware

Regular Price:

$9.58
This elegant cup is made by hand in the traditional style and technique of the Fujisō Banko tea pots. It is made from a special kind of clay which also contains iron; thus, when baked, the cup acquires the wonderful reddish brown colour which is characteristic for all Fujisō ware.

The cup is carefully designed so as to be easy to hold with one hand. The inside is covered with a transparent glaze that enhances the fine grain of the ceramic. At the same time, the special glaze ensures that the delicate flavour of the tea is not affected in any way. It is perfect for enjoying Japanese green tea. Also, due to its simple design and subdued earth colours, it is a beautiful object that brings a subtle touch of finesse to a pleasant afternoon with family and friends.

The price is for one cup.
Fujiso Bankoware Ceramics

 

 

Fujisō is famous for making Banko earthenware, especially tea pots and tea cups. Their products are known and appreciated all over Japan, as it is said that tea prepared and served in Fujisō ware keeps its strong flavour and taste intact (this is, in fact, one of the most important aspects that distinguishes Fujisō from other craftsmen in Japan).

The company was established in its modern form in 1907, but it boasts a long tradition that goes back for more than two hundred years, to the Edo period. It is located in the city of Yokkaichi in Mie prefecture, close to the beautiful Ise Bay, in an area rich in resources such as clay, water, and wood. The company is now managed by the fourth generation of the Fujii family.
